The New Facebook Update is Great for Brands – Please Don’t Ruin it

Back in December, Facebook made a decision to update their algorithm in an effort to intentionally limit organic reach for Facebook pages. (Note: we're talking about Pages - not personal profiles.)

Prediction: Vine Will Continue to Grow After Instagram Video Release

On Thursday, I sat at my computer anxiously awaiting the somewhat mysterious Intragram announcement from Facebook headquarters.  As Kevin Systrom (co-creator of Instagram) took the stage, I think we all had a pretty good idea what he was about to unveil; it was just the details that remained a mystery.

Why Google+ Never Took Off

Google+ is better than Facebook in pretty much every single conceivable way. It hit big with the tech/geek crowd first. We LOVED it, and when it came out of beta, we brought our friends over. Here's the thing: a social network is only as good as the people on it. People are used to Facebook. [...]
